In an Oct. 1 article, The Legal Intelligencer showcased Bull Blockchain Law, a boutique firm recently founded in Philadelphia by ’16 alumnus Andrew Bull.
Bull’s firm, the first in Philadelphia to specialize in blockchain and cryptocurrency, serves tech industry players who rely on records linked through cryptography.
The firm’s client base, the article notes, use blockchain technology for matters in real estate, data storage, supply chain management and gaming.
Bull had previously founded a cryptocurrency mining company, lured by a fascination with bitcoin that began in 2011 when the virtual currency was not widely known, the article said.
As one of the early members of Philadelphia’s bitcoin community, Bull is in a strong position to provide both technology consulting and legal counsel on regulatory issues.
In 2016, the online news platform Billy Penn named Bull to its list of “Whos’ Next” honorees, individuals poised to shake up the city’s political landscape, based on his work conducting policy research for Pennsylvania Treasurer Joe Torsella’s campaign.
As a law student, Bull was president of the American Constitution Society and treasurer of the Moot Court Board. In addition to completing his JD, he received an MS in Public Policy from Drexel.
